College Readiness and Completion Models for 60x30TX (CRCM-2018)

Program Purpose

The purpose of the Comprehensive College Readiness and Success Models for the 60x30TX (CRSM) is to award “funding based on student served” grants that support scaling and enhancing comprehensive strategies and activities to accomplish the priorities of the agency for achieving the goals and targets of the new higher education strategic plan, 60x30TX. To receive funding, eligible applicants will propose projects that implement, enhance, and scale corequisite models to meet or exceed the requirements of HB 2223 (85th Legislature, Regular Session).

Applicants should clearly demonstrate how the proposed project will increase the availability of core requisite models and support student success in the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) liable college-level course.  All proposed projects should be supported by promising and best practices within the field.
